    The Athlon XP 3000+ is only 2.1Ghz and still whooped the Northwood at 3.0GHz!

    AMD Briefly Shows Off Zen “Summit Ridge” Silicon

    Budget AMD Sempron 1.8GHz outperforming the "high end" Northwood 3.2C and Prescott P4 3.0E Hmm so a expensive high end CPU cant outperform a low end CPU with 50% the clock :) It takes a 3.2Ghz Prescott (P4E) to match a budget AMD Sempron 1.8Ghz by a 0.2 frames per second. hmm. You mean the...

    AMD Briefly Shows Off Zen “Summit Ridge” Silicon

    Malarkey? It's truth. Durons and Semprons outperformed P4 Northwood at lower cost. P4 Northwood were popular because Intel was more mainstream had a stranglehold. They used to force retailers to push their inferior products and punish manufacturers for using AMD parts. Anyways I'm talking raw...

    AMD Briefly Shows Off Zen “Summit Ridge” Silicon

    You mean the P4 Northwood that was getting handily beat by the lower clocked budget AMD Duron and AMD Sempron?

    AMD "Summit Ridge" Die Pictured?

    I agree. But you are talking about a specific P4 now, before you was clustering all the P4s together. The Willamette were criticised for showing little gain over the P3s By the time Northwoods and Prescotts and started breaking the 3GHz barrier and started pushing 3.8GHz the P3 wouldn't be...

    AMD "Summit Ridge" Die Pictured?

    Blanket statement which gets recycled. It depends on which version of the P4 we are talking about. There was many iterations.

    Sound blaster zxr or?

    You have misunderstood what I meant. The Auzen X-Fi card's (Prelude, Forte, Home Theater HD) have always had their drivers built and maintained by Creative. The fact Auzentech has gone bust doesn't effect those products. I had the Auzentech Forte too and downloaded directly from...

    Sound blaster zxr or?

    I wouldnt' let drivers deter you. The X-Fi Auzen driver's are built and maintained by Creative not Auzentech. The other Auzentech cards should have compatible c-media drivers. Saying that I agree the OP should stay with his Sound Blaster Z.

    Sound blaster zxr or?

    Analogue better on 5.1 is subjective..Everyone has their own opinion on what's better. Generally speaking digital would be better under DTS or DD encoding whilst gaming or watching movies which already have 5 audio channels.. Analogue would be better for listen to music in 2 channels. The...

    How to get DTS sound over HDMI

    Not enough information. What realtek board do you have? What speaker system do you have? AV receiver? Home theatre in a box (brand / model) If DTS works over optical cable just leave it. The quality wont improve over HDMI.

    Try the new AMD 16.2 beta driver http://www.techpowerup.com/downloads/2630/amd-crimson-16-2-beta-win-7-8-10-64-bit/ Lots of people are complaining about Rise of the Tomb Raider. I think its just one of those badly optimised games. You might have to turn the resolution and/or detail settings...

    lag in new tomb raider

    Need to be more detailed than that. What resolution are you playing at? What detail level are you playing at? What is the minimum, average, and max frame rate? Are the specifications in your system spec the rig you are playing on? Have you got the latest AMD drivers? Are you having this problem...

    Need help to set up 5.1 on my PC - i know nothing about PC

    Not true. This is why Dolby Digital Live and DTS Connect was invented. Had many soundcards with both technologies and never had an issue. DTS Connect is not Creative software. The DTS Connect technology is licenced by DTS, Inc. DTS, Inc has licenced-out their technology a bunch of soundcard...
